This book covers the six story television series in far greater depth with fascinating facts and pictures.

Is the story as good as I remember? – Yes

What ages would I recommend it too? – Toddlers and older. The pictures are fascinating to any age, and can be treated like a bedtime storybook.

Length? – At 315 pages, each segment is about 26 pages long, an hour or so read per night.

Characters? – Memorable, several characters.

Setting? – Ocean, desert, polar regions.

Written approximately? – 2007.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – You wonder what will happen next on the planet. Will these same events be viewable in ten years, and how will they change?

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? This book is written with British spelling and measurements. While this may not be too confusing in fiction, where measurements occur less often, lengths in feet and miles in this book can become confused to the reader. Often, you have to stop, go back, and re-read a sentence leaving out the first measurement for the one in parenthesis.

Short storyline: Each segment follows the film team of each particular show. My favorite by far is "The Great Plains," with the story of the desert antelope and the elephants. The Ice stories could be refreshing in summer for those who like icy stories.
